Long Exposures Require More Battery Power

SUMMARY: If you need to take photos requiring long exposures, expect your batteries to drain quicker.

Here's another common sense tip - if you plan on taking digital photos requiring long exposures of several seconds or more, expect your batteries to drain faster, so make sure to bring extra.

When might you take longer exposures? Possibilities include:

* Night photos, especially city photos where you're trying to capture the trails of automobile lights

* Astronomy photos such as those involving star trails

* Waterfalls

* Fireworks

* Museums or other buildings with low amounts of light
